by Zachary Rego

Are you planning a bachelor party in Raleigh North Carolina? If so, here are some ideas to help guide you along the way. There’s a multitude of options out there, but here’s a look at a few to help you plan a party before the wedding day. 

Live Music  

There are great venues around the triangle area that attracts everyone from premier A-listers to small up-and-coming bands.

Red Hat Amphitheater – draws some great names and is right in the heart of downtown Raleigh. Easy to make a night of it with a concert plus dinner and drinks.

Haw River Ballroom – a little bit of a hike but an awesome venue. Haw River Brewing is right underneath as well.

The Ritz – an indoor venue where the PBR flows like water. Some great names come through the doors here and it’s small enough that you can get right up by the stage.

Walnut Creek – a large outdoor venue where you can see some of the most popular bands on tour

Cat’s Cradle – a staple of Chapel Hill with local talent and some big names that come through. 

PNC Arena – PNC pulls some top-tier talent. You can also catch the Wolfpack and Hurricanes here.


The triangle is becoming a mecca for a beer enthusiasts. A few of the many great breweries are:

Bond Brothers – 2 locations, one of which consistently has live music

Burial – a bit of a transplant as the brewing is actually done in Asheville, but nothing less than exceptional on the draft lines

Trophy – one of the OG’s of the Raleigh area. Two locations downtown Raleigh.

Lynnwood – a larger setting that can easily accommodate larger groups. Wilson’s eatery has great bar food to pair with the numerous beers


NC is a golfing state and the triangle area has a plethora of great options for the golfing bachelor party. Below are a few high quality, easily accessible options.

Lonnie Poole – Arnold Palmer design and the NC State course. It's expansive, big golf course with some great holes and an awesome view of the Raleigh skyline

Finley – Tom Fazio redesign and the UNC-Chapel Hill course. Great layout and a private feel.

Pine Hollow – the hidden gem of the triangle area that everyone is finding out about. Great shorter course (only about 6600 yards from the tips) and the greens are always PURE! You won’t believe a $50 greens fee will get you on surfaces like this.

Pinehurst – it’s only about an hour down the road… We all know no. 2 and no. 4 but, no. 8 and The Cradle are worth the drive. 

Wego Golf – have a golfing group but don’t want to dedicate a full day to the course? Book Wego Golf’s mobile golf simulator to arrive at your house. A full, top-tier simulator with the options to play a full 18, have closest to the pin contests, long drive, or team scramble events.
